Altos las Hormigas Clasico Malbec 2011
Rich yet nicely cut, with fresh acidity and fine tannins supporting tasty wild berry and currant notes that expand with hints of underbrush and spice.
Deep saturated red. Black plum, licorice and a note of chocolatey torrefaction on the nose. Sweet, suave and nicely deep, with a saline quality and good smoky complexity to its dark fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes broad, with sweet tannins. Not a particularly fruity style, but nuanced for a wine in this price range.
